Review by

As with most Perry Mason books by Gardner, the story opens quickly, moves at an even faster pace and ends almost abruptly. In this novel Perry is hired to find who may be blackmailing a successful businessman's wife, without letting the woman know that anyone else knows she is being blackmailed. This backfires on Perry as he ends up defending the businessman for murder of the blackmailer. Of course Perry comes close to breaking the law with his methods, and in a standard courtroom scene he cleverly outwits the District Attorney and this reader as well. Gardner is consistant throughout his career and this book is no exception. it was very enjoyable but not his best.
